Birthday beer marks 10 years of Out There Festival

Previous Out There FestivalsYarmouth brewers Lacons have created a special edition ale to help celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Out There International Festival of Circus and Street Arts.

Head brewer Wil Wood and marketing manager Judi-mae Alderton welcomed the festival producers SeaChange Arts to their historic brewery for a tasting of the Out There Ale this week.

The beer is a 3.9pc golden ale which will be distributed to pubs around Yarmouth and Norwich over the coming weeks.

You’ll also be able to pick-up a pint at the festival itself, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17.

Mrs Alderton said: “We’re delighted to support the festival with a special brew in this landmark 10th year. Out There is bold, fresh and full of sparkling ideas. We’d like to think we’ve crafted a beer that reflects this.

“It’s a natural partnership. Both brands celebrate vital elements of the town's heritage, but have successfully developed them in a contemporary fashion.”

Darren Cross, communications director of SeaChange Arts said: “We’re pleased to be working alongside Lacons. Festival-goers will be able to enjoy the very best, world-class art and culture across the festival sites this year, then sit back and relax in one of our festival bars to enjoy a celebratory pint from the town’s award-winning brewer.”

The Out There Festival began in 2008 and has gone on to quickly establish itself as one of the UK’s leading outdoor arts events.

Almost entirely free and regularly attracting around 50,000 visitors, this year’s event welcomes 100 artists from more than 10 nations.

A massive family-friendly weekend of comedy, colour, breath-taking spectacle and skill, Out There highlights this year include a UK debut by French ‘circomediens’ Compagnie 2.1, Italian disco brass-band The Tamarros and a wonderful night time promenade show, Sense of Unity from the UK’s Worldbeaters and Germany’s Dundu.
